Well since this game is coming out after shippuuden starts, i was thinking they might add Shippuuden Story & characters as*DLC (downloadable bla bla) And ofcourse other parts for*a story mode are possible cause GTA IV on X360 had extra story mission as DLC so if they did it here it would be great, what you guys think ?
Yeah. I think the game will just go to the fight between Naruto and Sasuke. I hope the fillers will be added, too, because that is where the non-Team 7 characters really get some screen time and you get to see what they can do.
As for Shippuden, I actually like the original show more so far. I really am disappointed by the Akatsuki. There are only a few characters in it that I like. I would rather they have a ninja world war or something, because the Akatsuki seems to be really weak. Sure, there are some really powerful ninja in it, but they are very few, and*half*of those have already been killed off. I think that the Sound/Sand invasion was more of a threat than the Akatsuki.
The sequel to this upcoming game will probably be for Shippuden. For the designers to include stuff from both shows, I think we will have to wait for a new game system to make a decent one. It is better to focus on less and make it more detailed than try and do everything.
if you guys read the interview with games radar they ansewered that and the quote went something like
GR: so since shippuden might come out soon do you plan on having them
HR: no but we may have them in downloadable content because the DLC is undecided
PS: i just put in in paraphrasing
Yeah, I hope they DO. I mean it would be awesome fighting Diedera and Sasori!*And for Popoff, Shippuden is AWESOME and the Akatsuki die because they (Naruto and friends) are good ninja. Plus, who says they died easily? Sasori sure didn't!!
